    I can now destroy a room without explosives. I cannot express how amazing this sounds. 5744a026ff096ccf498a48ea113d5894.jpg

    You could not have said it better. The sound is Breathtaking, a real "Sound System" not a dipshit "practice amp" .The Zoom unit with Bluetooth could probably talk to it wirelessly. This may be my most amazing intuitive buy.

    So is that a 2x1/4” to 1/8” stereo cable running from the zoom to the Bose, and that’s it?

    Yup. Simple , elegant.I have a little Yamaha mixer I will put both the guitar and a mic thru. Perfect for entertaining a casual group at a party. Bose has always packed the most sound in the smallest package. They certainly have. Battery Powered !

    I also have the same Bose speaker for traveling with guitar, but use a Vox headphone amp or Line6 pod between. The Zoom looks like a great alternative. Since they say it can be USB powered, can you use a USB phone charger to power it? I would love that instead of batteries. Come to think of it, my other Bluetooth speaker (A Big Turtle) has a USB power out that could power the Zoom if that is possible.

    I had that pedal a while ago, I loved the sounds I got but found it incredibly difficult to use in a live setting. What you're using it for it would be perfect!

    Nice EW&F cover, BTW. :handfist:

    Yes, this is not a pedal for changing sounds. It is great for making sounds. Very tweakable.

    Their new zoom G1 Four pedal is only $80 bucks with two foot switches, a looper and all the sounds plus in the package.

    Slightly OT, but is your Yamaha mixer the AG03?

    I have it at another location right now but it is one of the Blue ones that has 2 XLR channels and 2 for RCA inputs ,also some basic FX.I bought a big battery that will power it DC.
